Subaru WRX goes WIDE for 2011

New York, April 1, 2010 - Subaru of America today introduced the new 2011 Impreza WRX models, which for the first time, share the wide-body design with the brand's iconic WRX STI performance flagship model, including the new-for-2011 wide-body 4-door sedan. An approximately 1.5 inch increase in front and rear track, firmer rear subframe bushings and wider 17-inch wheels and tires deliver improved grip in the 2011 WRX. This change underscores the high-performance character of these models versus the standard Impreza model line. Significantly, curb weight for the 2011 WRX models increases by just 34 pounds over the "original body" 2010 models, preserving their powerful acceleration performance.

The WRX 4-door design is based on a "wide and low" concept that gives the car an aggressive road presence. Like the wide-body design already used for the 5-door WRX STI, the new 4-door features widened front and rear track dimensions and wider, more projecting front fenders and rear quarter panels. The design maintains a consistent flow from front to rear bumper, creating a distinctive identity and a sense of stability.

In front, the 2011 WRX models feature sharpened bumper corners and wider, blacked-out fog lamp nacelles to accentuate the "wide and low" profile. A jutting lip spoiler with three-dimensional detailing emphasizes the cars' sporty intent. The newly designed front grille with black base and blacked out Subaru wing highlights the headlights' shape to give the entire front end a more powerful appearance, accentuated by larger grille and bumper intake openings.

The 2011 Impreza WRX models arrive in Subaru dealerships this summer and are powered by a 265-hp/244-ft/lb turbocharged/intercooled 2.5-liter Boxer engine teamed with a 5-speed manual transmission.
